Hello and Welcome to our preview for England versus India match. We are covering ENG vs IND Dream 11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI. The match is to be played at County Ground, Bristol.
The series stands at equilibrium after the impressive comeback from England yesterday. After failing to read Kuldeep in the first T20I, England tackled him brilliantly and he returned with the figures of 0/34 in his four overs. England’s bowling was also spot on and they kept the heavy Indian batting line-up under a tight leash.
India batted first in this match and the start itself was disappointing. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul went back early while Dhawan was run-out unfortunately. Kohli and Raina added valuable runs, MS Dhoni handled the ship after these two got out and India made its way to 148/5. India started off well but England became confident after putting away Kuldeep.
English bowling was a mixed effort. Willey and Plunkett kept the pressure on Indian batsmen by giving away only 35 runs in their two overs with two wickets. Ball and Jordan were taken for runs and proved expensive. Adil Rashid did decently. Batting was dominated by Alex Hales who scored a valiant 58 from 41 and took the team over victory line. Bairstow’s support was commendable.

England dropped their spinner Moeen Ali and included the medium-pace bowler Jake Ball. Ball was expensive in his attempt. However, the ground at Bristol is small which will not work in favor of Moeen Ali’s inclusion.
Ben Stokes is available for selection.
Any changes in the Indian team are unlikely despite the loss.
